Join the TEAM behind the TEAM

Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) invites skiers from across the United States to join the CXC Masters Team, a group of master and citizen skiers of all ages and ability levels who love the sport of cross country skiing and want to see the sport grow.


Currently, the program has five CXC Masters Team Chapters that host training sessions regularly throughout the Midwest: four locations in Wisconsin – Milwaukee, Madison, Rice Lake, and Wausau, and one in Chicago, Illinois.

Each Chapter meets with a CXC coach several times a year to work on technique, agility, strength, and individual training plans. Chapters create an opportunity to bond and train as a group with other master skiers that extends beyond each session.


Other opportunities built into the CXC Masters Team program include visiting the CXC Training Center in Madison for technique analyses on the rollerski treadmill, VO2 testing with  training zones evaluation, and balance and strength evaluation. Each CXC Masters Team member receives full access to the CXC Online Academy, which includes training plans and a video library.


After a summer and fall of training, CXC coaches will provide race support services for CXC Masters Team member at six Midwest races:

Seeley Hills Classic, Noquemanon, City of Lakes Loppet, Mora Vasaloppet, American Birkebeiner, and Great Bear Chase.

To end the season on a festive note and to celebrate a season of Nordic fun and excitement, CXC Masters Team member are the special guests with complimentary tickets to the CXC VIP Birkie Dinner.


The CXC Masters Team program has three levels of membership: Bronze, Silver, and Gold; the membership opportunities, benefits, and specialty features increase with each level of support.

Skiers from the across the United States annually become members of the CXC Masters Team, as individuals, clubs and business, joining  a network of great people who support, promote, and grow the sport of cross country skiing.

In return for this generous support, in the form of a TEAM membership, CXC provides many unique and exciting Nordic opportunities, highlighted by professional instruction from CXC Team coaches, top-level race support services, and social/training experience with other CXC Team athletes and supporters.
